Let’s explore the highlights of Majestic Princess.
1. La Mer
A 3 Michelin star winning Chef Emmanuel Renaut is the executive chef of the high end French Bistro located at the atrium. He was voted “Chef of the Year” by his Michelin starred peers. Chef Renaut has created a new French food menu with a modern twist for a unique fine dining experience. The restaurant will also offer casual, complimentary French style breakfasts and lunches.
The appetiser started off with escargots and wild mushrooms, black garlic custard bathed in a herbal broth. The chewy escargots took the taste of the broth was cooked in, giving a garlicky and butter taste.
Besides the beautiful presentation shown in the picture above, something irresistible about this meat pie was the minced meat stuffed in a crunchy short bread crust, onion-blueberry mousseline.
The bread slice is soaked in the goodness of scorpion fish and lobster mousseline, giving a very rich and unique flavour. While the light crust that shatters when you slice it. It gives a variety of textures and flavours; something soft, something crunchy and something savoury and something sweet.
The roasted pork tenderloin’s mild flavour partners well with savoury rich jus, coffee sabayon, mushroom tart and roasted potato. And the tender texture of the roasted pork tenderloin is a big factor for the success of this dish.
The aroma is slightly hoppy, with strong citrus notes, sweet short dough and end with slight nuttiness from the hazelnut.
This dessert is the perfect ending after dinner. It’s a chartreuse liquor scented cream with dessert-like chocolate flavour. It simply melts in the mouth and makes a refreshing indulgence.
2. The Piazza Atrium
The breathtaking Piazza Atrium, serves as the central hub of the ship with a grand piano displaying elegance and style. Elegant twin staircases spanning the different levels that you don’t mind going up and down the gorgeous stairs.
3. The Seawalk
The seawalk is a glass-bottomed walkway that extends 8.5m from the side of the shop and at a height of 39m above the ocean. It is a gorgeous walkway however there lies a danger for ladies. Meaning that any woman who crosses the walkway in a skirt are exposed to people walking on the ground.
4. Sun Deck
What’s on the outdoor pool deck? With a large heated pool and whirlpool spas, there is always room for a refreshing dip in the pool, poolside relaxation, or enjoying a cup of Gong Cha by the pool.
5. Gong Cha
I’m sure most of us are aware that all Gong Cha outlets has been closed by June 5 2017. Say hello to Gong Cha on Majestic Princess. I’m not exactly a fan of Gong Cha but I got excited with Majestic Trio that is exclusive for Majestic Princess. I’m glad and thankful to be one of the few Singaporeans who have tried this bubble tea. It’s not exactly a bubble tea but more of a dessert drink. Majestic Trio comes with banana slices, banana milk foam, milk, pudding jelly, herbal jelly. If you’re not a fan of banana, there are over 10 various flavours to choose from.
